DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — The FDNY added 18 names to its FDNY World Trade Center Memorial Wall on Thursday, honoring firefighters who died from September 11th-related illnesses.
The wall now includes the names of 177 individuals. The FDNY expects the number of deaths from 9/11-related illnesses to surpass the number of deaths from the attack itself.
Family members and friends of the fallen joined with firefighters for a ceremony at FDNY headquarters in Brooklyn. Kate Schlosser’s father, retired FDNY firefighter Michael O’Hanlon, died of cancer in 2017.
